keep root on hand if no chanter. Ive seen extremely well crowd control by rooting the mobs then step back out of the way so they can't reach you. Chain rooting mobs and stepping out of range can sometimes be more effective than trying to blast all your mana away. again this is if you have no mez class.

Nah, even if you have 2 other people rooting still focus on root. Tank is tanking? Root. Enc mezzed something? Root. Pretty much anything? Thats a rootening.

It is very important wizards gear to look like enchanters.

Real friends wouldn't bring a wizard

Get your wizards PLd to 60 like an ethical person

Yeah the only time a wiz is getting in a group is through friends.

Best bet honestly is to start friending bards. Can do some pretty fun stuff with that off meta duo.

Played a wizard since 2010, wizards should never be in groups. Even a 60 wizard without any rend robe w/e is doing less sustained damage than like a 43 paladin.

Classic EQ is an asymmetrical world. Wizards are fantastic at raids, mobilization, AoE, and soloing, but they are virtually dead weight in groups.

I don't care how many stuns, snares, evacs or cope excuse for "utility" anyone thinks they bring. They don't belong in groups but their strengths shine elsewhere.

If they make P99+, they should definitely just remove clarity from enchanters and give it to wizards

Got a 60 wiz. Practically never grouped to 60 but never needed to either.

Even with VP robe (60ish mana free DPS), VP staff and Epic I've literally gotten ghosted by Seb groups in trash gear. Like someone invites you and you show up, "oh a wizard ..." and they don't invite you and start crawling down.

Tbh, with a VP robe you can deal a fair bit of sustain and big nukes, roots and stuns can stabilize a bad pull and keep mobs from gating.

Before that however you are sort of useless, Wizards just have no sustained DPS. If I had to try I'd use low level root and stun, try to get some melee swings in because that's probably better DPS than what mediation and nuking would get me. Keep an eye on gating mobs and runners and nuke em or stun em. Make sure there'as mana for an evac.
